I have a question....Ron's PSA has gone from 0.26 to 7.5 in 3 months...on Zolodex and cassodex...then last week his PSA was 5.9??  I was surprised and of course elated ...Oncologist didn't say much ...waiting for a trend to develop but is this common??

with PCa anything is possible. Beings that he is on treatment i would suspect that it would go down hopefully more. The oncologist will record a trend before making any further decisions as to treatment. It is a rollercoaster ride battling this demon. Hang in there and enjoy the ride down with PSA.

peace and love
